And the bride wore a fairytale satin 'symphony'

AMY Huberman's sensational ivory gown was a "symphony" of satin and organza, a mix of fairytale and femininity that lived up to the name that its Welsh designer, Stephanie Allin, gave it.
In true romantic fashion, Amy fell "head over heels in love with it" after spotting the €4,000 gown at Myrtle Ivory wedding boutique in Anne Lane, off Grafton Street.
Yesterday the actress looked like a style-icon movie star as she walked up the aisle to marry her sporting hero.
It was the utter simplicity of the dress that people admired from the moment she arrived at the church -- a magical mix of gleaming satin bodice with dramatic silk organza skirt and a floor-sweeping trim of satin at the end of the dress for a little touch of drama.
A keen supporter of Irish fashion, Amy bought her dress, not from the designer's stores in Wales or London, but from Myrtle Ivory, the only Irish stockists of the popular brand.
"It is a very beautiful dress and the skirt is very dramatic, with all the volume at the end," said Suzanne Mills, who opened Myrtle Ivory with her sister Marina four years ago.
The bodice was strapless and fitted with a matching satin belt with bow detail.
It gave length in the upper torso for the petite actress. The skirt silhouette was dramatic with multiple layers of organza and the circular skirt, which looked fabulous as Amy walked, was filled out with a petticoat.
